About this Cook
I have MS, my hands are often numb or tingling which makes cutting or chopping difficult.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes, usually a meat dish. I try it as it is written first, sometimes I try it again and make changes to suit my family's taste. Desserts are my favorit thing to make. I will try a new recipe, everyone will rave about it and ask for the recipe. Cheesecakes are my specality, everything from mini to 12 inch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love when the my whole family gets together and everyone pitches in. It is usually for a summer bbq, everyone makes their favorite family dish. It is amazing how we all learned from my Mom but we have all adapted it to our personal tastes.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV
I thought this recipe was just perfect! I did not change anything about it, followed the recipe as written. We were looking for a recipe to use for "flower pots" and gave this one a try. We will use this one again in the future.

Irish Cream Sugar Cookies
I baked the cookies just as the rcipes reads, no changes. After they were baked I added green sugar to the tops on some, green butter cream frosting to some and left a few plain. The cookie is tender and light in flavor. My husband and children loved them and asked for me to bake them again. Now, next time I make them I will change the amount of Irish Cream and follow the advice of a few others. I can not rate a recipe unless I make and bake it according to the original recipe. I feel this is a good cookie but a few changes could possibly make it better.
